Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The pieces of this service have a circular rounded form onto a circular domed spreading foot.
The body of each piece is ornamented with a fine and impressive broad band of chased grape vine and foliate decoration to the upper portion.
The lower portion and foot of the teapot, cream jug and sugar bowl are embellished with embossed fluted decoration.
The shoulders of each item are encircled with a band of two tiered leaf designs above an impressive egg and tongue decorated border.
The teapot is fitted with a flush hinged hallmarked cover ornamented with further impressive chased leaf decoration to the domed portion; the flush hinge indicates the fine quality of this service.
The cover is surmounted by an exceptional, large sterling silver bud and leaf decorated finial.
The teapot is fitted with a sterling silver C scroll handle ornamented with a large single leaf design to the upper portion which is incorporated into the shaped thumbpiece and an impressive chased leaf design to the lower socket.
The cream jug and sugar bowl have sterling silver ribbed vine style handles with bifurcating upper portions, which terminate with a single grape leaf decoration, and a large spreading leaf design to the lower portion.
These exceptional examples of Scottish teaware retain the original gilded interiors.
This stunning and exceptional service is probably one of the finest examples of its type you could hope to acquire.
